The members of the Yahoo Group "Surf Guitar 101" decided to put together a mp3 compilation as a way to get to know each other, share music, share recording tips, and to just have fun.
Some songs are from professional bands while others are from amateurs. Some of the songs are "surfy" while others are more experimental. All of them showcase each member's creativity and talents.
The Surf Guitar 101 group is an email list dedicated to the discussion of all things relating to instrumental surf music and related genres. The group is mainly aimed at musicians, but anyone who enjoys instro-surf is welcome. For more information, visit http://www.surfguitar101.com

This is awesome!
I've been getting interested in Surf music, and found surfguitar101. Then started searching around and found this compilation. Then a BUNCH of compilations done annually. Wow!
So - listening on my laptop and seriously thinking about dusting off my MP3 player so I can snag each set and listen to some surfy goodness. Maybe even mess with the Bigsby vibrato on my guitar and a little reverb and maybe delay on my amp.
Surf compilation. Wow. Multiple annual compilations by the same folks. Even more wow.

I enjoyed this compliation quite a lot! Herein lies a nice variety of stuff!
I was also curious how I might check in with a particular artist to see if it was alright to use their song in a movie I'm making, but cannot find contact info...

under listening pleasure
I first listened to one of DP tracks on is myspace page and got curious about is projects. And I m glad to listen to one more of his tracks here.
I must say I m a geek for Surf, Exotica, Easy Listening nostalgic sounds and this compilation is sure to make you feel the flavour of the fifties americana surf scene.
